Fort Amherst was built in 1736 as a defence to prtect the South East coast from the invading French Army. During the Neapolionic wars in 1803-15 the Forts defences were enlarged and strengthened. The Fort was still in use during the 2nd World War where is served as an air raid warning command post. In the late 1970's a group of enthusiasts, with permisson from the ministry of defence, started work tidying up the Fort to restore it to its former glory. In 1980 it was bought from the ministry by the Fort Amherst and Lines Trust. Now it opens the Fort to visitors every day and some of the cannons are fired on Sundays throughout the year.
A Georgian Lady, a Victorian man and a red coat soldier are just a few of the spirits said to haunt Fort Amherst. The Plotting Room is known to be home to the faceless spirit. One of the passageways is said to be haunted by the spirit of a young boy who likes to pull at the skirts of young women who visit. The Lightening Shaft is haunted by a female spirit which staff have nicknamed Lily of the valley(Georgian Lady) Dark Shadowy figures, phantom voices, phone props ringing, phantom drumming and cries of women and children are somne of the experiences that have been reported.
